No. In 1 Kings 17, Elijah the Tishbite, the Prophet, raised the son of the widow of Zaraphath Some time later the son of the woman who owned the house became ill. He grew worse and worse, and finally stopped breathing. She said to Elijah, “What do you have against me, man of God? Did you come to remind me of my sin and kill my son?” “Give me your son,” ...

No one knows for sure. The Bible doesn't speak directly to this issue, no Pope has spoken ex cathedra about it, and no ecumenical council has addressed it. The "angelic doctor" Thomas Aquinas wrote in his catechism: All will rise in the condition of perfect age, which is of thirty-two or thirty-three years. This is because all who were not yet arrived ...

Like God, we humans are spiritual beings. Unlike God, we are not just spirit; we are physical, corporeal bodies which are animated by spirit. Imagine, if you will, a living body. Picture this body standing upright, but perfectly still. Every system in the body is functioning as it should: the heart is beating at 72 times a minute; the oxygen-carbon-dioxide ...

What an excellent question, as it forced me to really think it through. I think the disconnect is in the very first lines. You make two assumptions that Mormons would not agree with. The first is that without a physical body a spirit is able to be in more than one place at a time. Doctrine and Covenants 131:7-8 7 There is no such thing as ...

So if the dead are already with Jesus where are the dead in Christ rising from? Those who died in faith in the Old Testament are to be raised at the second coming of Christ. Daniel 12:2 And many of them that sleep in the dust of the earth shall awake, some to everlasting life, and some to shame and everlasting contempt. Hebrews 11:40 God ...

This is a very common mistake. If you only read verses 16 and 17: For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first:Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ...

Just as those that rose with Christ when he was resurrected, those that rise first after the second coming will rise from their graves: 52 And the graves were opened; and many bodies of the saints which slept arose, 53 And came out of the graves after his resurrection, and went into the holy city, and appeared unto many. (Matt 27:52-53) ...

Ressurection is mentioned many times in the Bible. Job also said "And after my skin has been destroyed, yet in my flesh I will see God" (Job 19:26). According to this article, the Sadducees based their doctrine only from the Torah(Pentateuch), rejecting all Jewish Oral Laws and gave no importance to the writing of the Prophets. In Matthew 22:23-33, ...

In Revelation 6:9-11, John the apostle sees a group of people in heaven before the resurrection has taken place. They had died earlier. They are speaking to God with a loud voice asking a question (proving that they are near enough to Jesus to talk to Him). Then they are given robes (proving that they have enough of a body to wear apparel) and are told to ...

I remember reading in the gospels that at the time of Christ's resurrection there were many others who had died, that were also resurrected and were seen walking around. For example, in Matthew 27:52-53 we read, "And the graves were opened; and many bodies of the saints which slept arose, And came out of the graves after his resurrection, and went into the ...

I can only really answer this from the perspective of evangelical Christianity as I have been taught it, and I'm sure there are some other interpretations out there too. Essentially this comes down to our different perspectives of time. When someone dies, from the perspective of those of us left behind, they are effectively in a timeless state - fans of ...

Both dispensational and historic premillennialists hold that all Christians who died or were raptured prior to the beginning of the millennium will reign with Christ during it. One standard dispensational commentary, the Moody Bible Commentary, describes two groups of people that will reign with Christ in its treatment of Revelation 20: Verses 4a-b ...

Who exactly is resurrected and reigns in the millennial city in premillennialisim? To clarify a bit, there are three “rasings from the dead” that could be called resurrection. At the rapture those who have died in Christ return with Jesus and those who are Christian meet them in the air and receive their new bodies. It is fair that this is technically not ...

Difference between Lazarus rising from the dead and Jesus resurrection and ascension? Prior to the resurrection of Jesus, those who trusted (had faith) did not receive new and eternal life. They were to be raised and get their new life at the "first resurrection". Hebrews 11:39-40 And these all, having obtained a good report through faith, received ...

The simplest answer to your question is that Lazarus was raised by Jesus command; while Jesus raised at his own command. John 11:43 KJV And when he thus had spoken, he cried with a loud voice, Lazarus, come forth. John 2:19 KJV Jesus answered and said unto them, Destroy this temple, and in three days I will raise it up. John 5:26 For as the ...

I suppose this is not what you want to hear, but: The separation of spirit and body is death. That means immortality implies that spirit and body will not be separated again. Resurrection makes us immortal. This is the logic I would follow: Resurrection -> body immortal -> spirit & body inseparable Instead of what seems to be your logic: Resurrection ...

The answers given are correct. I would just add one thought. Given that resurrection can be defined as the "inseparable union of body and spirit" (See Alma 11:45 & D&C 138:17), and that the resurrected body will accord with the respective degree of glory obeyed (See D&C 88:28-32), it is clear that the resurrection itself is the judgement - the ...
